    Hi, the click-clack waste in the basin waste in our bathroom has started leaking. The problem is due to corrosion of the plating on the metal on both the fixed and moving parts. This appears to be due to these parts touching when the waste is closed.
    Can anyone recommend a replacement that seals without the metal touching?
    Many thanks.

    Normally a rubber or soft plastic seal.

    Am looking for a click-clack waste not a captive waste. We have one of these in our utility room and it works adequately well here but it doesn't make a 100% seal.

    I fit lots of these. Just done one last week to replace some Chinese waste that lasted 18 months. Few more pounds, but it's cheaper in the long run and cheap plumbing fittings are a pain to keep replacing.

    Fit quality. Fit it once!
